Children in Cumbria invited to enter Draw a Firefighter competition


The competition gives children the exclusive opportunity to design a mug that celebrates the NHS. The winning mugs will then be made by Royal Crown Derby Artisans who aim to produce 26,299 mugs, representing and celebrating every day since the formation of the NHS on July 5 1948 to its 72nd anniversary in 2020. The competition has two entry categories, under 12’s and 12-18 and entries will be shortlisted by our in house design team and the winner in each category will be selected by the artist and children’s author Liz Million.

Click here for more details.

Competition entries are now open and will close at 4pm on May 7th, 2020. The winners will be invited to Derby to meet the design team and see how the mugs are made from start to finish at the factory. The winners will also take a tour of the Palace of Westminster with my colleague, Jo Gideon MP, and will be presented with the first mug off the production line together with their framed artwork. The winners will also visit the V&A, the world’s leading museum of art, design and performance, where their mugs will be exhibited.
